Yoni and Doseone @ Knitting Factory - Dec 18, 2008 (just_remember_to_roll)

"On Wednesday December 17th, Doseone, Jel and the other founders of Anticon played an intimate show in the Tap Room of the Knitting Factory. Doseone [told] the history of how the label came to be. I can't believe I missed it... I saw the 10th Anniversary show the next night. My show ended with a cLOUDDEAD reunion. The kids got a little crazy, I almost punched a few people. Seriously."

cLOUDDEAD would have been an amazing reunion if Yoni hadn't been so reluctant about it.

if you don't want to do it, then don't do it. i'd almost rather have not seen it than see him be a grump about it.

(this whole show was such a treat, seriously.)

an open letter to yoni wolf:

please don't ever do a cloudDEAD reunion again unless you really want to. was it the lure of money? was it peter "i never shut the fuck up about me" thanksgiving brown that pressured you into it? or odd and dose?

don't get me wrong, i like your solo stuff, and i'm happy you are doing well. the lounge act you did was fun, and i'm sure it must feel nice for kids to be screaming your name now.

but seriously, 'dead dogs too' and 'keen teen skip' are possibly THE EASIEST vocal tracks you could have picked from the cloudDEAD catalogue and you fucked it up. come on man, i didn't even WRITE those fucking songs and i knew what was what.

i don't understand how during a label showcase where every single other person is talking about how much they love eachother and came out to collaborate on eachother's songs, you could only do your set and get dragged out for two cloudDEAD half-songs. is anticon dead weight for you now or something?

the reason cloudDEAD is still lauded is because you guys never sullied your name with this kind of bullshit. get with the fucking program, odd and dose did a great job.

I think it needs to be pointed out that it's not so much that Yoni didn't care as that he was clearly fucked up by the time cLOUDDEAD went on. "I feel like I'm holding an ice cream cone."

And yeah the show ended way too late they could've saved two hours by cutting Thanksgiving Brown.

anticon is horseshit. why? is the only band on there worth listening to. they all got their heads up eachothers asses

So not true. If anything, this concert proved that they are all awesome worthwhile performers, be it singing or rapping or tweaking knobs or however they expressed themselves.

It was truly a pleasure to see a group of old friends reunite and show how they had all grown.

When was the last time you saw that?

i enjoyed dose's anticon stories. thanks for posting the videos. jel is ill on the mpc.

music is art. don't be so critical of people's creativity, don't like it? don't listen. lots of other heads do.

that show was amazing. thanks to all who came out.

sorry bout my mole. never been called out on that before.

whats a closet racist? i dont have a problem with closets, although i prefer to leave clean laundry in the hamper.

Hi Hater,

Damn it feels good to see people up on it.

i just realized i am a chode and a major cashew

Why the disrespect to Portland Maine?...
at least that town is running rampant with hipster garbage.

Jel & Buck are the only respectable parts of Anticon.

I like his mention of the tape trade! That was the shit back when hip-hop was good and before it was "cool".

I never expected to hear Dose use the words "wigger" and "retarded" - I thought he was intelligent... I guess not.

cLOUDDEAD live? Ugh, that was horrible!

Posted by mainerererer | January 11, 2009 11:24 AM

why? and 13 & god only non garbage on anticon, and sole your mole was quite disgusting.

Posted by mainererererererer | January 13, 2009 4:37 PM

Ok, I was not at this concert, but i love dose, why, and clouddead so much. This was a beautiful thing to see clouddead together again, but really yoni...would it have been that difficult to even pretend you wanted to be there? You're like the angry little step son kid at the family reunion. Dead dogs two was the song that made me listen to Clouddead and the vocals were pitiful. I feel like I could have done better.
-enthused, yet disappointed

Yoni was in FreeHoudini.
and it was amazing, he cant possibly think it's too much dead weight?

i listen to sole, Jel, why?, themselves, doseone, and cLOUDDEAD on a regular basis... i wish i could have been there...

When perusing the stock of, one finds all too irresistible the urge to strike off on unforeseen paths of spending potentiality. This would be a non-problem if not for the existing constraints of one's pocketbook contents in a situation in which those contents do not include monetary funds of any known sort. The ramifications of this sort of development are regrettable, if tendentiously inevitable. I simultaneously applaud and verbally reprimand you for this state of affairs,
